Why Deport Children?
H.R.5053, the Expedited Family Reunification Act of 2014, amends the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 for the worse. Expediting the return of children to lives of poverty and violence is inhumane. Sponsored by Rep. Salmon, Matt (R-AZ-5), this bill only exasperates the problem of child refugees entering the nation. The Wilberforce Act assures these children are given full protection under the law and are returned to safety in their homelands.
